I have bought the T8 WZ-132 and now I'm thinking about which T9 chinese should I buy the WZ-120 or the WZ-132A.

Noone of both. WZ-132 is a good light tank for its tier. The tier 9 and 10 lights are just horrible compared to the Russian lights and the Chinese mediums are mediocre aswell.

None.

While the light is ok (not great) with its elite config, the stock gun is almost useless at T9, so you'll need a ton of free xp to mount the top-gun.

And before getting the mediums play the heavy line first to unlock most of the guns and save a buttload of xp. Also mind that the chinese meds are probably one of the worst techtrees at the moment overall.

While I find the Chinese meds a blast to play due to their size (and their slightly different search for hull down positions - as the tank is smaller than their counterparts you cannot use many of the usual hull down spots) you really should grind the heavies first - the gun of the 113 is the top gun of the tier 9 med - that alone is the reason to get it (except for the heavies being overall nice to play). As for the lights, they are OK, nothing stellar, but acceptable. I gotta admit though that the tier X CHina light is amazing when it comes to driving uphill.

Both t9 and t10 chinese lights and meds are not really worth it.

If I had to choose one of the two, I would go light tanks.

Ok thx I think I won't grind the T9s just the wz-132s top gun and play for fun with it because Imo its a good tank. I'll start the K-91 tree, what do you think about it? Should I skip the T6 and T7 or they are good tanks?

Not the case really, wz 131 is one of the best lights in game tier for tier.

Also the premium chinese TD at t8 is soild.

I own the 113, WZ 111-5A, 121, and I am at the tier IX; WZ 132A.

I endorse what is said above that (a) do the two heavy lines first to unlock modules, (b) the mediums are not as good as the RASHA equivalents, and (c.) the tier IX and X light tanks are too neutered to be much good.

 

A-43 - A surprisingly good tier VI, and great for various Personal Missions.

A-44 - awkward and not that good.

Object 416 - once you had the tier IX gun it was the best tier VIII medium in the game, however, when the trees were altered to bring in the K-91 understand it took a nerf, personally not played it since then .

Object 430 II - was lacklustre. The armour used to troll bounce but the need to find very flat surfaces held it back. Now the armour has been nerfed.

K-91 - that dpm.

I always say wait for the next test server and try them all out.

I do that for all tanks even premiums when possible.

 

Its always worth doing especially for higher tier tanks why pay several million for a tank you might not like.

Buy them with the resources they lend you for the test try out not just those tier 9s you mentioned but the tier 10s as well

See how they play and if you like them

I found the 132A and 132-1 ok and reasonable vs other lights. However I've found lights generally far less effective since 1.0 and rarely play them.

 

I've played a43, a44 and 416 but not gone on as the old 430/2 didn't appeal and the new one gets a bad press. I haven't seen many K91s being played or read much about them so assume that they are average at best. So my conclusion about this line is that they are quirky but not unsuited to current maps.

 

OP if you haven't already played the Italian line, I recommend it. T5 and t6 are competitive, T7 is probably my favourite t7 med, and the autoreloaders from t8 are intellectually challenging to play and often rewarding.  I'm currently half way through the t8 pantera grind and looking forward to the t9 standard b. I'm expecting it to be the star of the line.
